Antonio
Hester
American forward Antonio Hester (198-F) had a very impressive game in the last round for TuNMKY, receiving a Eurobasket.com 1st Division Player of the Week award for round 20.
The -year old player had a double-double of 30 points and 15 rebounds, while his team beat Jarvenpaa (#4, 13-8) 108-95. TuNMKY maintains the 3rd position in Finnish 1st Division. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. TuNMKY will need more victories to improve their 14-7 record. Hester turned to be TuNMKY's top player in his first season with the team. Antonio Hester averages this season 21.1ppg and 16.6rpg. Worth to mention Hester played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped him get the job in pro basketball.

The second best player in last round's games was 33-year old Gambian Pierre Jallow (203-F/C-79) of Jarvenpaa. Jallow had a very good evening with a double-double of 35 points and 13 rebounds. Bad luck as Jarvenpaa lost that game 95-108 to slightly higher-ranked TuNMKY (#3, 14-7). It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the top position in group B. Jarvenpaa still maintains its place in the top 4 of the standings, even despite this loss. His team's 13-8 record is not bad at all. Jallow is well-known at Jarvenpaa and is a proven leader in his second season with the team. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 23.6ppg (#4). His other stats are also decent: 14.9rpg and 3.7apg.

Third on the list of top players last round was another Jarvenpaa's star - Gambian forward Pierre Jallow (203-F/C-79). Jallow showcased his all-around game by recording 21 points, sixteen rebounds (!!!) and five assists in the last round. He was another key player of Jarvenpaa, helping his team with a 88-71 easy win against the lower-ranked JyWe (#8, 5-16). Jarvenpaa needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams in group B. Their record at this point is 13 victories and 8 lost games. Jallow has a great season in Finland. After 13 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 23.6ppg (4th best) and rebounds with 14.9rpg (#1 in league). He also has 1.5bpg and FGP: 57.8%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Rudolf Mua (201-F/C-80) of Kerava ET - 33 points and 9 rebounds
5. Eryk Thomas (200-C/F-85) of SayRi - 23 points, 13 rebounds and 3 assists
6. Nolan Richardson (188-G-84) of Ura Basket - 36 points and 3 assists
7. Brian Moultrie (198-C/F-87) of BC Nokia - 19 points and 18 rebounds
8. Rolando Little (206-F-86) of SayRi - 29 points and 6 rebounds
9. Nafis Ricks (188-G) of BC Jyvaskyla - 26 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists
10. Elias Kajander (196-F-80) of ToPo - 23 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists

The Player of the week is choosen based on efficiency calculation, but also including game result, importance of the game, if played recorded double-double/triple-double, etc.
The efficiency formula is a combination of various formulas used by different basketball organizations/leagues. We got involved many basketball scouts and journalists to assure it's accuracy.
The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3*(REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) - 2*BSAG - 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4*(2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM - 3*(2FGPA-2FGPM) - 3*(3FGPA-3FGPM) - (FTA-FTM)
